    I have friends who purchased from them more than once. I found the pricing to be a bit too high. May always be the fact that the vehicles I am interested in are on consignment. Saw a few of their cars in Moscow. Seems they ship a lot out of the country.

    After visiting their dealership off-and-on for about a decade, I've found almost all their cars to have "issues".

    What I'm trying to say is, the cars are not top quality, but that seems to be their business model, which is OK. I have no argument with that.

    I've done business with DC for 15+ years and never had an issue. Nice cars, The owner and Todd are true car enthusiasts and have been there for 20+ years. I wouldn't hesitate doing business with them.

    Doug (owner) is a straight shooter and all around good guy so I wouldn't hesitate to buy anything from him.

    I have gone there for several years for one reason or another while chasing one car or another is more like it. They have the knowledge on the cars but they are WAY over priced. To the point that pricing competes with Dealer pricing if not more...

    And the way they advertise their cars would make one think that their inventory is flawless which it is not. The two cars I went to see were priced out of the market and the overall condition was not great at all. Maybe as someone else posted the cars are on consignment and they need their mark up?

    Have you seen what it is like to run a Media company in California? Probably not its not your business, all I know for sure is what the market prices are for some vehicles that I was interested in purchasing. Are you associated with them? The OP had a question, I answered it from my personal experience.

    Been there a few times looking. Most of the cars seemed beat up, although to their credit everyone I talked to were straight up about what needed to be done to correct the problems. Asking prices were high but then again every dealer in Southern California seem to have very high asking prices relative to other parts of the country.

    I bought a Lotus Exige S240 from them a few weeks ago. Overall, it was a good experience - I can't complain. The price was a bit higher than what I could have found via private party, probably by about 10%, but I didn't have the luxury of being picky because I wanted a certain color/year that DC motors just happened to have...so I was SOL.

    I'd do business again with them in the future if they happened to have the exact car I was looking for. But if I had the luxury of shopping around and buying private party, I would.
